4 GETTING STARTED
Start by personalizing Suunto M5 to get accurate guidance in reaching your
goals. Through the personal settings, you tune your Suunto M5 according to
your physical traits and activity. Many of the calculations use these settings,
so it is important that you are as accurate as possible when defining the values.
Press any button to activate your Suunto M5.
To set the initial settings:
1. Press any button to activate the device. Wait until the unit wakes up and
says hold 2 sec. Keep
pressed to enter the first setting.
2. Press
or
to change values.
3. Press to accept a value and to move to the next setting. Press
to
return to the previous setting.

8
● date
● personal settings: year of birth, sex, weight, height, (calculated BMI), fitness
level
NOTE: BMI (Body Mass Index) is a number calculated from your weight and
height. It indicates whether your weight is within healthy limits. However, if you
are very muscular, your calculated BMI may be higher than expected, because the
BMI ranges are based on average body types.
NOTE: Once you have entered your year of birth, your device automatically
sets the maximum heart rate (max. HR) using the formula 207 – (0.7 x AGE)
published by the American College of Sports Medicine. If you know your real max.
HR, you should adjust the automatically given value to the known value.
For information about adjusting the settings at a later time, see Chapter 13
Adjusting settings on page 29.
TIP: Press in the time view to view the status of your current day exercise
target, date and seconds with the time. The display returns to show only the time
to save battery life, if you do not press again after 2 minutes.

level in the initial settings.

en
Select one of the following options:
● very poor: you prefer using the elevator or driving to walking, or sometimes
walk for pleasure, and occasionally exercise sufficiently to cause heavy
breathing or perspiration.
● poor: you exercise regularly 10 to 60 minutes per week in recreation or
work requiring modest physical activity, such as golf, horseback riding,
calisthenics, gymnastics, table tennis, bowling, weight lifting, or yard work.

WARNING: People who have a pacemaker, defibrillator, or other implanted
electronic device use the HR belt at their own risk. Before starting the initial use of
the HR belt, we recommend an exercise test under a doctor’s supervision. This
ensures the safety and reliability of the pacemaker and HR belt when being used
simultaneously. Exercise may include some risk, especially for those who have been
inactive. We strongly advise you to consult your doctor prior to beginning a regular
exercise program.
NOTE: HR belts with ANT icon ( ) are compatible with ANT compatible Suunto
wristop computers and with Suunto ANT Fitness Solution, while HR belts with IND
icon ( ) are compatible with most exercise equipment with inductive heart rate
reception. Your Suunto Dual Comfort Belt is both IND and ANT compatible.

13
duration, the device estimates the kcal consumption and adjusts your exercise
plan and history accordingly.
TIP: Warm up before and cool down after exercices. These are not included in
the recommendations and should be done with low intensity.

Medicine for exercise prescription. For more information about the plans, see
Section 12.1 Exercise plan on page 27.

en
11.1 Testing your fitness level
Proceed with the fitness test (Rockport test) to evaluate your fitness level. The
test helps you to follow your progress and gives up-to-date information for
various calculations in the device. The fitness test usually takes 10-30 minutes,
depending on your walking speed.
Find a level and even place where the distance of 1.6 km/1 mile is known (for
example, 4 times around a 400 m track).
TIP: Use a treadmill or internet map services to determine a known distance.

trend, see Section 12.2 History & trend on page 27.
TIP: Perform the fitness test regularly, for example once a month, to keep your
fitness level updated.
11.2 Testing your rest HR
Rest HR is your HR at rest. Test your rest HR to get even more personalized
guidance from Suunto M5 and to follow the development of your fitness level.
Improving fitness level usually lowers the rest HR.
To test your rest HR:
1. Moisten the contact areas and put on the HR belt.
24
2. Make sure your device receives the HR signal.
3. Lie down and relax for three minutes.
4. Check your heart rate from the device and adjust it accordingly in the
personal settings.

12.1 Exercise plan
en
After you have set your fitness level in the initial settings, Suunto M5 offers you
a long term plan with a 7-day overview, in line with the recommendations of
the American College of Sports Medicine.
In suggestion you can view the following information:
● recovery time
● recommended exercise duration for the next 7 days
● graph of the recommended exercises for the next 7 days
● next target for next 6 weeks (fitness and weight target)
● next recommended training time, duration, and intensity
Perform the fitness test to measure your current fitness level. Based on your
current fitness level and ACSM guidelines, your Suunto M5 creates an exercise
program that gradually guides you to excellent fitness level. For example, if
your fitness level is below average, the exercise program guides you towards
the fair fitness level first, before moving towards good. That way you can build
a solid fitness base without the risk of overtraining. As your physical condition
improves, the frequency, duration, and intensity of the exercise sessions
recommended by your Suunto M5 will increase. After you reach the excellent
fitness level, your Suunto M5 exercise program helps you in maintaining the
excellent fitness level.
